once again, science and reason rules out over feelings and emotion.
Such a pity that the NRC has only one commissioner who has a scientific background. Who as it happens was the single one to vote against the hunt. I suspect they did not vote in favor of the trap-happy NRC's decision to override the Department of Natural Resources' recommendation to only allow trapping on private lands to address problems there, the NRC extended wolf trapping greatly to encompass the state and national forest and other public property in the management zones.
Top biologists came out against MI's wolf killing bill stating it violated the principles of the North American Model of Wildlife Management (that many wolf haters love to cite but have little idea what it really is):
#1 Wildlife is Held in the Public Trust
#2 Elimination of Markets for Game
#3 Principles of Democracy
#4 Hunting Opportunity for All
#5 Non-Frivolous Use
#6 International Resources
#7 Best-available science
Congrats to Michigan! Good luck to all of the lucky hunters and trappers over there who draw tags. Shoot straight! Wolf hunting is an incredible experience. The mount of my Minnesota wolf was just completed yesterday, and I can't wait to bring it home.
